Last night my girlfriends (Colleen and Alison) and I went to dinner at Brio. Colleen and I see each other at work on a daily basis and Alison used to work with us. We’ve stayed in touch and it’s always nice to catch up and see how the other is doing. It’s amazing what a difference a year makes. This time last year we were talking about our upcoming weddings (we all got married within 4 months of one another) and now we’re talking about who wants to have a baby when. The time really does fly.
It’s nice to have friends at the same stage of life as you. Conversation is easy and is relatable. Since I’m an only child, I hold my friends very near and dear to my heart. They mean so much to me and I’m lucky to have some good ladies in my life.
Onto dinner, Brio is a newer restaurant near our job and it appears to be a chain restaurant. Here is what I had: Brio Chopped Salad - chopped greens with tomatoes, olives, onions, cucumber, Gorgonzola cheese and red wine vinaigrette dressing. Pasta Alla Vodka – handmade pasta filled with Ricotta cheese, tossed with crispy prosciutto, garlic, basil and a tomato parmesan cream sauce. Crème Brulee Trio – brown sugar, caramel and peanut butter chocolate crème brulee served in espresso cups. Everything was tasty!
